in high school we always did that thing where you buy a ticket for the later show, say, 9pm, go see the movie at 7, then afterward go to customer service and ask for a refund, saying you decided you didn't want to see it. BADASS.
@RiffRandell Lol, I STAND CORRECTED.
@Dervisher or sorry, businesses funded by VC's. anyway, no, I spent four years working for two of them. i don't think it's an ideal way to function but it certainly works in many cases. doesn't mean it's not worth thinking through the ramifications.
the typewriters… i can't
@Allison Oh my god YES actually I had a coffee meeting in one of those on the Upper West Side about a year ago. SO WEIRD. Maybe I could go there? Either way we need to write about that place.
@Christy This is wonderful news -- THANK YOU!!
@DebtOrAlive Ooh I never even thought of that! My savings is in a Capital One 360 acct (is this a sponsored post yet?? Ha), which is supposed to be online-only but I wonder if I could just walk over to Capital One… Mostly I want to humble brag and say I totally showered and am wearing a dress and working out of a pie shop today.
@readyornot Oh my god that ACH thing…I missed that. So it's not my fault, really it's the PIPES fault, right??? Mike was just telling me about that last part, too. Really most of what I owe is for income I know I'll get at the very very end of the year (last of the Tumblr money which has been in escrow). So I am wonderingggg if I will be penalized for not annualizing and pre-paying taxes on that. And 90% is good to know!
"the one woman on a team of 60" oof
@BillfoldMonkey YES it is real. Very real. Also I was looking for a photo for this post and if you google 'dog baby bjorn' there is much fun to be had.
